. if you are in new york city, schoolteachers and firemen make $100,000 a year and they are easily in households the approach the limit. it depends and where you live. among high-income people, there is a wide range of what people pay in taxes. if you're a lawyer in washington, i find them to be reasonable people who work long hours. you are probably paying 28%. if you are on wall street and you are well-connected if you have a capacity to have your income defined as investment as opposed to salary even though it is indeed salary income. if you are somebody like jamie dimon or warren buffet, you can get away with 14% tax. the real problem with upper individuals are not the people who pay the taxes we intend for the to pay, but all the people who get away without paying any taxes at all. those tax breaks and write offs are derived by the president and by democrats, but they never seem to get fixed. one reason is republicans do not want them fixed. and the other hand, the democrats get a lot of campaign contributions from wall street. that is a real problem on both sides of the aisle

sm. host: joining us from new york city this morning, mr. fund, i just want to begin, if we could, actually, with the front page of "the washington post." in the news that president obama is looking at proposals on guns. obama asked his cabinet members for ideas to curb violence. what do you make of that? guest: well, we've been this way before. in 1994, president clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law. it expired in 2004. so we have 10 years of experience of what that ban did. and frankly, a university of pennsylvania study looked at all of that said that while there was some slight decrease in the use of assault weapons, it did nothing for overall gun violence. assault weapons, semi-automatics are used between 2% and 8% of crimes and it said the gun ban did nothing to reduce the overall level of gun violence in this country. look, i mean, this is a very tragic situation. and it's a very emotional one. it's at least an emotional issue as abortion or the death penalty. and emotions run high here. and we have a very deeply divided country. we have a large chunk of the count
for children, a city, a country at war with itself. what kind of things are these little girls seeing beyond the school gates? >> translator: we as educators don't support one side or the other. our concern is for the child to learn. so we keep the school open and help with their fears. we can't do as much as before, but the key thing is to try to deal with their anxiety. >> reporter: up, down, left, right, two, three, four. out in the playground it's a p-e lesson. exercises including running to the wall, touching it and running back. here, the running's for fun, but beyond the school walls, a shell or mortar can land anywhere any time, running could be a matter of life and death. for obvious reasons the killing of small children and teachers in and around school buildings is pretty near the top of the news agenda at the moment. so it is in this educational district and the one next door alone in the past two weeks, 35 small children and two teach verse been killed. the security building next to the school was car bombed recently, leaving a staff candid about the problems they face here. >>
have been able to stop him. >> we don't want to turn our schools into dodge cities. >> reporter: at least one school district in new jersey placed armed guards in each school over the governor's objection. >> you don't want to make this an armed camp for kids. i don't think that's a positive example. >> such an interesting debate. you feel like we have to do something to prevent another tragedy like the one we saw in newtown. but folks say you don't want to make campuses feel like police states. and can schools afford these days to put armed patrolman in every campus? or every door and school. you don't know where it's going to go from here. >> most people agree on the idea of high magazine clips. why would you need 50 rounds. but most people agree on new gun control after newtown, gun sales skyrocketing. one store in virginia saying they've been off the charts. they've never seen anything like that before. just within the last week. >> watching the head of the nra give that press conference on friday and subsequent interview over the weekend, he said we're open to all solutions

instead of the way things typically are where it's for a particular state or a particular city looking for that. or i think considering that we tested that we've seen there was enough interest that 13 partnerships would apply for that, that really shows i think the promise of this strategy which has been used in germany of these national manufacturing innovation hubs. and i think that is something that we're going to look to promote in a second term and expand further. >> over here. >> thank you. paul freedman with every child matters. we're very -- i applaud you for your comments about the need not to have us fighting against -- money for children versus money for research and other vital needs domestic discretionary budget. so the question is where do we find more revenue and have you considered taxes on stock transfers and transactions or other kind of innovative approaches where we can find new revenue that will be possible for us to not fight amongst ourselves for important ry sources? >> well, it's going to shock you and many of you to know that i am not here to make news on new
